Tried searching the forums for a up to date post but nothing could be found. Just something back in the old forums that was barely relevant.

If I have myself as a booster and someone else in my squad, how do my own bonuses apply to myself? I'm talking about both the skill based bonuses and the module based ones.

They all apply to you if you have a buddy in a ship in your current solar system in space.

And he needs to be in the right position in fleet. Means if youre the squad booster he needs to be in your squad, if youre the wing booster you need someone with leadership V in squad command and someone in the squad.

Depends on the boosters position in fleet.

Squad Members generally get boosts from Fleet, Wing, and Squad boosters.

I believe Squad leaders/boosters also get Fleet, Wing, and Squad boosts.

Wing Commanders/ Boosters do not get boosts, or they only get wing boosts. This position is wonky and buggy!

Fleet Commanders/Boosters only get boosts from the Fleet/Wing boost.

The above assumes you have players properly skilled and in proper command positions. You need a squad commander with a high enough leadership skill to allow their squad members to receive boosts. Similar skills are required for your wing and fleet commanders.
